ATLANTA (AP) - Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal says the state's net tax collections increased more than 7.5 percent compared to this time last year.
Deal on Monday announced that November collections totaled $1.64 billion. The total includes $76.7 million due to changes to the state's gas tax and other fees that lawmakers approved this year as part of a transportation funding push.
Deal's statement says total tax revenue for the year totals almost $8.4 billion, a 9.1 percent increase compared to November of 2014.
